Description
In Abby's world, magic isn't anything special: it's a part of everyday life. So when Abby learns that she has zero magical abilities, she's branded an "Ord"-ordinary, bad luck, and quite possibly a danger to society. The outlook for kids like Abby isn't bright. Many are cast out by their families, while others are sold to treasure hunters (ordinary kids are impervious to spells and enchantments). Luckily for Abby, her family enrolls her in a school that teaches ordinary kids how to get around in a magical world. But with treasure-hunting kidnappers and carnivorous goblins lurking around every corner, Abby's biggest problem may not be learning how to be ordinary-it's whether or not she's going to survive the school year.
